A balanced, motivational training, offering solid skills
The Globe Institute of Physics awarded its first engineering degree in 1920. Its founder, Edmond Rothé (bibliography), In 1935 defined the principles of training geophysical engineers, to which the EOST remains faithful: a solid theoretical foundation, rounded off by practical work in laboratories and the field. Updated to remain in line with the times and industrial developments, it is an Internationally recognised model.
The researcher-lecturers and physicians of the EOST Observatory, the guest lecturers, speakers and work supervisors in enterprises all contribute to training student engineers.
This is based on the integrated study of geophysical methods, the geological environment and the I.T. and mathematical tools for the processing and interpretation of data.
On completion of their training, our students will have acquired 11 skills, both general and specific to the EOST engineer. They are grouped around 3 major macro-skills.
- The acquisition of scientific knowledge and techniques and control over their implementation.
- Adaptation to the company and society's specific requirements.
- Acceptance of the organisational, personal and cultural aspects.
The EOST skills referential and the cross comparison skills table and the programs are provided in the EOST training matrix (pdf)
The learning objectives, content, teaching methods and assessment and acquisition methods are specified in the training referential (pdf).
The curriculum covers three years of study : admission, organisation of studies, monitoring knowledge, work experience and internship reports, graduation, International exchanges are specified according to the in-house rules (pdf) in force.
